Went here recently for dinner. Some of the things we wanted to order were not available, but what w did get was very nice. I had the mussels in champagne cream... The sauce was a bit tasteless but the mussels were cooked perfectly.

The Saturday brunch in the Café Belge at the Ritz Carlton can hardly be improved! Super fresh and extremely tasty food, prepared to perfection. The seafood platter including lobster, day fresh oysters etc. are a delight to start with accompanied by brut or rose bubbles! The selection of fish and meat, all served in individual portions at your table are just delightful, not even mentioning the array of deserts and the perfect matching wines! And all of this without having to cue at fuzzy buffets between loud tourists! Yes, Café Belge, you're great! Thanks a million Mr Lothar and your team!

We went on Saturday around 5.15 pm to Cafe Belge we entered and we noticed some people sitting outside and some indoors. The hostess was not at the entrance but we met her inside and guided us to a table outside.

She said that the kitchen would only open at 6,00 pm but we could go and sit outside and have a drink first. So we were seated outside and had a look on the drinks menu. When we were ready to order she told us we also couldn't have a drink and that they would only open at 6.00 pm.

Why she let us come in then in the first place and gave us a table. She should have known that we wouldn't be served at that time.

She told us we could go to another bar in the hotel which we didn't do and we left. You have now lost a very regular customer and I believe the manager of the Cafe Belge should train his employees better so that they know the opening times of the cafe exactly and not guessing at it like today.If you ask my opion I should put a Belgian manager in charge of a Cafe Belge and not an Italian the way it is now.

Well, if you decide to head to DIFC, you have for sure to stop by Cafe Belge.
The best Mussels in Town by far, especially the Champagne one. French fries are very good.
Whether you stay inside or you decide to have a table outside to enjoy the courtyard, well you will not be disappointed. Courtyard is cool even at this period of the year, you do not suffocate.
Service is good and staff is friendly.
Went there 3 times last week with colleagues and friends.

i went there with a group of friends (10) for Saturday Brunch. we had Hiroshi as our waiter whom actually shouldnt really congratulate on the great service he provided!
the seafood platter to start with was exquisite followed my the appetizers form which i can still taste the truffle eggs in my mouth. so good! Main course (sea bass, poached salmon and meat ) was okay, pretty good but nothing special. desserts are good; too much chocolate i believe but tasty.
overall experience was pretty nice, loved the show that put with the dancers. goes pretty well with the setting and atmosphere of the restaurant; pretty nice music in the background as well.
